What’s a Face Serum and How Do You Apply It?

   

Face serums are more concentrated than moisturizers and they penetrate deep into your skin. Plus they’re easily absorbed. Face serums can treat a host of skin issues including wrinkles, fine lines, discoloration, and general aging. Not to mention that they add vibrancy to your skin and no matter your skin type, they make your skin glow.

Serums should be used once per day after you’ve cleansed your skin. It’s important that face serums are applied to clean, dry skin. For anti-aging, choose a skin serum that neutralizes free radicals.

To apply, add about four drops to clean hands and rub your hands together. Then, using both hands, press your hands onto your face and ensure that the serum is properly absorbed. Make sure when you’re applying skin serum that you’re not going too close to the eye. Take your time to apply the product to ensure that your skin absorbs it so you can enjoy all the benefits.

After you’ve applied your skin serum, make sure to follow with a good daily moisturizer that includes broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection so you can protect your skin from any further sun damage or aging.
